Great location. Plenty of space. Lovely hosts.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very spacious, had a good kitchen, nice furnishings, and very gracious and accommodating hosts. Check in and check out was simple. The location can't be beat. The apartment was only a 10 minute walk from the Colleseum and from two different metro stops. We were able to get to the Vatican by metro in less than 30 minutes (including walking time). There is a nice grocery store in the neighborhood and we were able to cook several meals in the well-equipped kitchen. The building was quiet except for some construction in an upstairs apartment, but that was only during working hours. Overall, we had a great stay and we would stay here again.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment in a good location. It is tucked away in a safe friendly neighbor very close to the Colosseum. There are many great local resturants and stores nearby. We did not utilize the close by metro system but seemed easy. We used Uber and walked almost everywhere. The apartment is very clean, wifi is fast, and air condition works well.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Nausicaa was great to work with. She arranged a car to pick us up in Civitavecchia where our transatlantic cruise ended. Antonio met us upon arrival and showed us around the apartment. He also picked us up three days later at 5:45am and drove us to the airport to catch our flight back home. Overall the apartment was comfortable and clean. We didn't spend much time there as we were too busy exploring the city. We only had to walk a few blocks to the Coliseum, had many cafes, gelato places and grocery shops close by. The hop on hop off "Big Bus" tours was also just up the street. We had a great time in Rome!

Good location, but photos don't tell the whole story.

  • 3 of 5

Positives: The location of this apartment is very good. It is a short walk to the Colosseum where there is a Metro station (blue line). There is also a taxi stand nearby. There is a small grocery store on the next street which is an easy walk to the apartment. It is also about a 10-15 minute walk in the other direction to the Metro stop (red line) near the SanGiovanni Church. This was helpful when we went to the Vatican because there was no need to change Metro lines as the Vatican is reached by the red line. A man named Antonio was waiting for us at the apartment when we arrived. He let us in, and gave us an introduction to the apartment. He also agreed to take us to the airport at the conclusion of our stay but we decided to leave early so did not use his service. The bed in the main bedroom was very comfortable.

Negatives: The apartment is very small. Upon our arrival, Antonio explained that if the power goes out, we needed to use a key to open the wall box on the first floor and flip the switch to get it to turn back on. Within 15 minutes of us turning on the AC, this happened. It also happened twice more during our 5 day stay. The power always came back on immediately but it was disconcerting. Also, be aware that the photo of the living area makes it appear bigger than it really is. The curtains are covering the windows in the photo. When we opened them, we disovered that we were very close to the neighboring wall. It was a clostrophobic feeling.The fans provided (because the AC did not cool the bedrooms very well) were not in good shape. One of them could not really be used at all. The refrigerator did not get very cold and the "white" chair in the living area was stained/dirty. This is an old building in a historic area, so you should expect some challenges if you stay here.

Nausicaa was very good at communicating with us throughout this process. She replies promply to all messages.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here on our first trip to Rome and had a great time. As we travelled from city to city, it was nice to have an apartment with a washing machine half way through our trip. The apartment is pretty basic, but has pretty much all that you'd need. We used the AC and were able to watch some television in the living room. If sharing this place with several people, you should know that the master bedroom does not have a door or any way to close it off from the rest of the apartment, though the second bedroom does. There is a lift to use for luggage, as apartment sits on second floor. Antonio's car service was very nice and convenient. Location was great; we were just a few minutes walking distance from the Colloseum and the metro station right behind it. Very easy to get everywhere we wanted to go. Neighborhood is great; there are several delicious restaurants within walking distance to the apartment. All in all, a great experience in Rome!
